Basic search with Yacy

Can anyone walk me through using Yacy to try to find the URL for a site, for example, “stack overflow” or “google search JSON API”?

Like, Yacy already has an index of the web, so I just need to keyword search it and maybe write a tight Regex and limit to 3 results and that’s it?

Thanks very much

I just ran a search for “google search JSON API”. It yielded about two pages of results, mixed from local and peers. Is this anything like the page you had in mind?

Yacy search result ranking is not deterministic so it will be ordered differently each time you run a search.
